Solena — At the age of fifteen, my parents forced me to give my baby up for adoption. I never got to see his little face or hold him. All these years later, it still hurts — so much that one night I decide to dull the pain with alcohol and sex. There’s only one man I want, but the President of the Savage Raptors MC might be more than I can handle. I’ve had a crush on him for a while now. He says he can only offer one night. I want more. I want it all.
Atilla — Lost my woman seventeen years ago. Thought I’d lost my daughter too… until she showed up on my doorstep. Now I have a pregnant teen living with me, and a woman who wants more than I’m able to give her. Solena is far too young for me. Hell, she’s barely older than my daughter. So why is keeping my distance so damn difficult? Is it really okay to fall in love again?
WARNING: Atilla has a guaranteed happily ever after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. There are subjects some readers may find difficult to read. Recommended for readers 18+ due to adult content.
I took a shot of vodka, then another. It was the anniversary of Rebecca’s death, and it always hit me hard. Hit by a drunk driver before our child could even be born, I’d lost them both. Normally, I’d go to the cemetery to pay my respects. She may have never returned to Bryson Corners, but her family had her buried about an hour down the highway in their family plot. It always bothered me that Rebecca’s family didn’t give our daughter a proper burial. I did not know what happened to her body, and since we weren’t married, no one would tell me a damn thing.
“Everything okay?” Spade asked as he settled on the stool beside me.
“Do I fucking look like I’m okay?”
He shook his head. “Not even a little. Get like this every year about this time. Can’t figure it the fuck out, though.”
“Some secrets are my own.” I hoped he’d leave it at that. If I’d kept her here, would we have had a happy life together? Could she have handled being part of this club? I wasn’t sure, but at least little Casey would have been alive. She’d be a teenager now.
Since losing my family, I’d never once been tempted to settle down. Watching Lynx fall in love had been bittersweet. I was happy for the two of them, but days like this it made me miss my woman even more. I had no idea if things would have worked out between us, but our kid would have tied us together, and I’d have done anything for my daughter whether her mom and I were still together.
The clubhouse doors opened, and Rebel popped his head inside. “Um, Pres. Might want to come out here a minute.”
What the fuck was happening now? I stood and walked over to the door, yanking it all the way open. Nothing could have prepared me for the sight in front of me. If I hadn’t known Rebecca was dead and gone, I’d have thought her teenage self was standing on my steps.
“Are you Atilla?” the girl asked.
“Yeah. Do I know you?”
She shook her head and pushed her hair behind her ear. When she shoved her jacket aside to pull something from her pocket, I saw the swell of her stomach. Kid didn’t look old enough to be out of high school and she was pregnant? Well, as long as she would not say it was mine. No fucking way I’d have touched someone so young, not even dead ass drunk. Didn’t matter if she looked like my sweet Rebecca.
“You knew my mom.” She came up the steps and handed me a picture. Rebecca. My throat grew tight and then her words registered.
“My name is Casey,” she whispered. “And I think you’re my dad.”
about the author
Harley Wylde is the International Bestselling Author of the Dixie Reapers MC, Devil’s Boneyard MC, and Hades Abyss MC series.
When Harley’s writing, her motto is the hotter the better — off the charts sex, commanding men, and the women who can’t deny them. If you want men who talk dirty, are sexy as hell, and take what they want, then you’ve come to the right place. She doesn’t shy away from the dangers and nastiness in the world, bringing those realities to the pages of her books, but always gives her characters a happily-ever-after and makes sure the bad guys get what they deserve.
The times Harley isn’t writing, she’s thinking up naughty things to do to her husband, drinking copious amounts of Starbucks, and reading. She loves to read and devours a book a day, sometimes more. She’s also fond of TV shows and movies from the 1980’s, as well as paranormal shows from the 1990’s to today, even though she’d much rather be reading or writing.
